  • Hi, mehmet! 
    Well, if you google it, or even search this website, you will find loads of ideas. So, I won't make a new list here. But I can tell you what helped me the most:
    In the beginning I was listening to audio books and was reading the book (e-book) simultaneously. I chose books which used that kind of vocabulary I wanted to learn. That helped me to understand novels, university lectures, news, and all kind of formal English.

    Secondly, I watched series which had a lot of slang in it, or very tough accents. I watched them first without, and after that with English subtitles. So I could test myself what was already easy to understand, and for which words I still needed the help of the subtitles. That helped me to understand easily all kind of (fast spoken) conversations. I find it important to choose material that is a challenge, and work concentrated for an hour or so. That worked best for me. Greetings!   

  • listen to audio English records which are produced by reliable sources as much as you can. Thank you.
